Thats great Sammie. Thanks, I'm sure I will be able to use the one that you 
have all ready removed. If you see Dan or Ronnie this weekend, please give it 
to one of them and I will get it when they get back to Houston. Thanks again.

I've got good news and bad news. Found you a single pin caliper (good 
news); it's awful crusty (bad news); without taking it apart I don't know 
if you can salvage the pin and any parts or not; more good news, the price 
is right (free). I have one more Ghia that still has the calipers on 
it. It's kind of buried down in the ground from sitting and I'm gonna have 
to jack it up and attempt to unbolt the wheel to see if it has the single 
pin caliper. Try the free one, if you can't salvage the parts you need 
from it, let me know and I'll see what I can do about the other one.
